Kal Spriggs is a science fiction and fantasy author. He currently has three series in print: The Renegades space opera and space exploration series, the Shadow Space Chronicles military science fiction and space opera series, and the Eoriel Saga epic fantasy series.
Kal is a US Army veteran who has been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. He lives in Colorado, and is married to his wonderful wife (who deserves mention for her patience with his writing) and also shares his home with his newborn son, three feline overlords, and a rather put-upon dog. He likes hiking, skiing, and enjoying the outdoors, when he's not hunched over a keyboard writing his next novel.
Autograph Session (L. Correia, C. Kennedy, Ringo, Spriggs)
Autograph sessions will be located in the Dealer's Room. Authors will cycle through hourly, except for the author's that have their own tables who will be available when they are not scheduled in the program. Limit 5 books (if you bring more, get 5 signed and go to the back of the line.)
Urban Fantasy is rife with traditional monsters and creative riffs on them. Is there ever anything new under the sun? SF has every kind of alien you could imagine, yet Urban Fantasy generally uses traditional monsters based on folklore. Larry Correia will moderate this panel of authors as they attempt to create a completely new and unique monster and the folklore to go with it. Will it be huge and ugly and covered in tentacles? Or furry and cute but hiding a vicious appetite?
